Lewis & Clark County Sustainability Initiatives
Over the last few years, Lewis and Clark County has been working hard to encourage, promote, and support resource efficiency, energy conservation, and economic savings throughout our community.
We recently finished a $1.4 million project upgrading all of our 30 county facilities – from the Augusta jail to the Myrna Loy Center with more efficient lighting and heating and cooling systems.
Currently the Sustainability Department is overseeing three sustainability grants, EPA Climate Showcase Communities, EPA Brownfields Assessment, and USDA Solid Waste Management.
Within our community we have developed the Tri-County Energy Efficiency Small Grants program, Green Business Program, Green Drinks events, and the County Green Team, all which work with our community to be more energy efficient and reduce energy costs.
